16 X 12 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
Available through Copperwood Artware Gallery
This is the second in the oil derrick series. Many of you compared my last painting to William Wray's work which was incredibly sweet because he is an artist whose work I admire very much.
For me this painting was very much about arranging the elements in the composition, not painting what I was seeing in my reference photos. I feel a lot more confident working from photos now because I've painted plein air for the last few years. I feel like I've gotten better at adding in atmosphere that wouldn't normally be in a photograph.
I hope you enjoy it!
